    Hi, I’m Lew from the UK

    I am so saddened to hear of Richard’s passing. He was a dear friend who I knew for the last 8-9 years. We spoke and chatted on videocalls at least once a week. He was charming, intelligent and funny and I feel priviliged to know him as a friend, and shared lots of good times.
    I last spoke with him on the 21st May – I had since been away and when I returned, I was concerned that I hadn’t heard from him.
    I can’t believe he is just gone, so suddenly. I will miss him greatly, he leaves a massive void, as I’m sure he does for his wonderful family. Please accept my sincere condolences – I never met you but I loved Richard and hope he is at peace.
    If you ever want to get in touch, my email is badger1665@hotmail.com

    Rest in peace my dear Rich, with all my love.
